Heroic Words of Wisdom Pairs Superheroes with Their Inspirational Dialogue


To start off the new year, let's take a look at Heroic Words of Wisdom, a clever set of posters that pairs famous superheroes with their inspirational dialogue. Carbondale, Illinois based illustrator Adam Thompson created this series by re-purposing the artwork of Jim Lee, Francis Manapul, and others, along with his own, and adding pieces of dialogue that had a special message or meaning.

As he states, “Superheroes already have a prominent place in pop culture. Their images can be seen anywhere. As a fan I enjoy seeing the strength of these characters in the spotlight, but because I am looking to reach a new audience, I needed to find a new light. I had to consider that comic books are a series of images accompanied by dialogue, and since it's the images that are already so prominent, I decided to focus on the dialogue.”

What you'll find are words that resonate with you, empowering messages that are both inspirational and insightful.
